Women activist Shirin Huq and Gonoshasthya Kendra founder Zafarullah Chowdhury on Wednesday called all citizens to come down to streets and stage candle light protests against abductions and murders. In a message sent through email they said, “The bodies of all 7 those abducted from Narayanganj on 28 April 2014 have been found in the Sitalakhya river at Narayanganj. News of abductions have been coming from all corners of the country.“We cannot remain silent in the face of the abductions, disappearances and murders that are taking place. As concerned citizens we have to register our protest. We propose that everyone walk to there nearest main road, light a candle at 7pm and stand for half hour, hold up a placards/pieces of paper saying “goom hotyar desh amra chai nai”.
Anybody interested in such an action, please get back to me, Shirin Huq said in the message. We have to try and mobilise as many people as possible – friends, neighbours, relatives.”
